Gorgeous wide open space where the locals gather for chats. There is card playing etc. Great shops round the edge and next to the centro storico and the shopping areas.

Lovely square with quite a lot of different restaurants and 2 gelateria. Got very busy in the evenings especially during festival time, but quiet in the mornings. Only a minute from the picturesque old port.

This is nice place for families but the numerous foreign vendors of totally bizarre cheap items ruin the atmosphere. They harass you until you buy something or you move away. It is impossible to relax in one spot. The police seem powerless.

Nice square but not very big, in the center of the old city. Few terraces were open. It worth to relax here in a sunny day.

Piazza Giuseppe Garibaldi is one of the liveliest parts of Monopoli. It's located in an intersection of narrow streets in the old town and has bars, restaurants and the port nearby.
